WMF Espresso 5500E Fully Automatic Machine


WMF Espresso 5500E Fully Automatic One Touch Espresso Machine

The perfect espresso, handmade automatically.

Bridging the gap between two different worlds, the award-winning WMF espresso combines the unmistakeable taste of tradition with the undeniable benefits of automation. It looks and sounds like a classic portafilter machine – steaming, hissing and evoking all the emotions of an authentic espresso bar – but the trickier parts of the process are fully automated. So it not only guarantees consistently high coffee quality, it’s also remarkably easy to use. Recommended for venues with an average daily requirement of 300 cups, it lets you prepare genuine espresso coffee and Café Crème in just a few simple moves.
